“Bulgarian people are looking forward to hearing your nominations for government ministers within the constitutional timeframe," Radev told ITN officials as he handed them the mandate and stressed the presence of serious problems in the country.

"It is an honor and responsibility for me to be here. I will do anything I can to meet the constitutional deadline," said Nikolov.

Bulgarian law states that ITN has one week to go back to the president with an official government nomination and then put it forward to Parliament for approval.

ITN emerged as the largest party from snap parliamentary elections July 11 by obtaining 24.08% of the vote and winning 65 of 240 seats in the legislature. ​​​​​​​
